The workshop is free to attend and open to the public.

Generic Orally Inhaled and Nasal Drug Products Workshop Registrationdisclaimer icon

Since its commencement in 2012, the Generic Drug User Fee Amendments (GDUFA) Regulatory Science Research Program has aided our understanding about the critical product attributes that are relevant for in vivo performance of Orally Inhaled and Nasal Drug Products (OINDPs), and has led to the development of tools beneficial to both industry and the FDA for developing and assessing generic OINDPs. Several external and internal research projects have been initiated under the GDUFA Regulatory Science Research Program. The outcomes from these research studies have provided valuable insights about the factors that influence the performance of OINDPs. The focus of this FDA Workshop is on the evaluation of these new methods for characterizing and demonstrating equivalence of OINDPs, including discussing the areas in which these methods may significantly contribute to generic product development and regulatory understanding, how and under what conditions the methods should be conducted and evaluated, and inherent scientific challenges with this complex class of products.

The purposes of the workshop are to:

  • present the outcomes from the research projects initiated under the GDUFA Regulatory Science Research Program;
  • discuss how regulatory science initiatives have helped address regulatory science knowledge gaps by providing insights on factors that influence the performance of generic OINDPs;
  • share the Agency’s experience on the utility of novel analytical tools and methods developed under the regulatory science initiative for generic OINDP product development and bioequivalence assessments; and
  • obtain input from the public on what, when, where, and how analytical methods and procedures should be applied in the development and review of abbreviated new drug applications (ANDAs) for complex OINDPs.
